I think you've confused the names of the rocket and engines, from what I have read the engine is called Rutherford and the rocket is called Electron.

Re: Go away
It is exactly the same situation across the ditch. We have the retailers complaining and pushing for GST/import duties to be applied to all imports but they seem to miss the point that people are buying things significantly cheaper from online stores.
I'm not saying if it was right or wrong but my understanding is that they want him for more than just copyright infringement. IIRC there were conspiracy charges and money laundering as well but he has managed the PR so well on this that it is about the big bad studios stomping on the little (well not so little) guy.
The amount he pops up in the news over here is ridiculous, keeps promising all sorts of things or is in court over one thing or another. His political party is a joke, he has formed an alliance with a far left party just to work our MMP system to get a far left politician (he picked as the leader of his Internet Party) in to parliament to do his dirty work. Hopefully come September the voters realise what a joke this is and they get nowhere near parliament.
Re: Poor Lil' Kim
He didn't get citizenship, only permanent residency and that was after some degree of lobbying to the immigration department (I think). This is also why he cannot be elected to parliament with his "political" party.
Re: 60k wan't a guess
Another article I read on this suggested that the problem was that the flight plan had been filed under VFR and the system was trying to route the U2 down to 10000ft as that is the limit for VFR flying. It was the quantity of changes to other flights in getting it down to 10000ft that overwhelmed the computer.
Inconceivable - I see what you did there :)
Re: Not as bad as depicted
Lies, damned lies and statistics
Re: Not a NZ Citizen = not an MP
What I find ironic is that none of the media here in NZ have actually pointed this out, they have been reporting it as if he will be running for a seat in parliment
Diver 1: Don't worry, whales only eat sardines
Sardines: Swim away!
Diver 2: Oh look, sardines

Re: I know why
I can just see the headlines now "Astronauts End Up In Lake After Following Wrong Sat Nav Instructions"
Re: No chance
Damn, now I am trying to think what novel that was in but was definitely set in Greenland/Iceland
I read it more like "we like this idea and know its a problem but still want to be allowed to blow your satellites up if we don't like you this week'
Good idea! Since it would be used to shuttle things between Earth and space we need a name that suits its function...... I know! it could be called a Space Shuttle!
"SRBs have not given any trouble in Shuttle service, either" Ummmm, are you forgetting Challenger?
Re: Somebody doesn't know math I believe!
The lightsquared signal might only be -30dBm but the signal strength of the GPS signals is somewhere around -120dBm, which is a huge difference. The problem is that the lightsquared signal will saturate the input filters of the GPS Rx causing loss of signal.
More likely test interface
Looking at the high res photos on iFixit of the dock connector pads it looks like they are used for bed of nails type testing during production as you can see clearly small needle like marks on each pad. This does make sense in that for development they can fit a dock connector to make things easy but then remove it in production, relying on a bed of nails setup.
It also looks like the dock connector might clash with the screw hole beside it as the plug appears wider than the footprint for the connector.
I had the same thing happen, turned out it was my antivirus software realtime scanner stuffing things up, turned it off and the update raced through.
